My experience with Lucent Imaging was outstanding. James and Korske are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I was very impressed with the quality of their work and will definitely be back.

Michael Briguglio, Canberra

Very accommodating, fast service and great retouching. Besides the price a little high (although needing decent amount of fixing) I’m very happy. Will use them again.

Tash Robinson

Awesome experience, outstanding quality with my prints, The advice Korske gave really made the difference. Without Lucent Imaging, I would have ended up with mediocre prints. Definitely a repeat customer.

Michael Tiyce

Can’t recommend Lucent highly enough. Printing and paper quality is beautiful and the service is second to none. Korske really went above and beyond to help me create the finished product I wanted. Highly recommended.

Scanning vs Photographing Artwork

Photographing larger artwork is generally more cost effective than scanning, however there can be a significant difference in the quality of the final image.

Even using the best DSLR’s on the market, the average professional photographer is limited to ~60 megapixels. Our 600dpi A2 scans are the equivalent of 139 Megapixels.


High Value Artwork Scanning

If you have high value artworks that require digitisation, we can certainly look to accomodate your project. Depending on the value of the works and capture method, a few additional steps may need to be taken to ensure we meet your expectations and the requirements of our insurers.

Copyright: Scanning purchased, commissioned & gifted artworks

When scanning purchased, commissioned & gifted artworks, you must have permission from the copyright holder to do so. The exception to this is if the creator passed away before 1955.
